We spend a lot of time in the Catlins area and often see sea lions but on a recent visit to Surat Bay we weren’t expecting to see one quite this close.
On our recent holiday we stayed at Hokitika, a great spot on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. We hadn’t spent much time around this area and one of the places we really wanted to visit was the beautiful Hokitika Gorge.
Poolburn Dam on Rough Ridge in the Ida Valley is isolated with rugged, beautiful scenery.
The Denniston Plateau is a great place to explore, history at every turn and a glimpse into what life would have been like in an isolated mining community. We had a great day here, it’s a must visit, near Westport on the South Island’s West Coast.
